The Best BBQ Meatball Recipe of All Time

These BBQ Meatballs are our favorite meatball recipe of all time. I usually make three or four batches at once and vacuum pack them for the freezer. It’s nice to be able to get some out whenever you need an easy meal. My husband really enjoys this meal, so we made them fairly often. Allison’s […]

DIY Windowpane Christmas Cards

We love to make our own cards here in the Boyer household. Actually, when I was younger, I used to spend much of my free time making cards and even selling them at local craft fairs! These days, I’ve retired from card-making as a business, but I do still enjoy sending handmade cards instead of […]

For those nights when you just don’t know what to make or are dealing with picky dinner guests or just don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen…this is the perfect recipe.

Flower Sugar Cookies

Once in a while, a seemingly awesome idea from Pinterest doesn’t work out. But it’s awesome recipes and ideas like these Flower Sugar Cookies one that keep me coming back for more and more. When I first saw a pinned image of someone cutting a ball of dough with a pair of scissors, it immediately […]

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Disclaimer: I am not the biggest fan of sweet potatoes. I have an especially adverse reaction to the stick gooey that people drizzle over tip. Yuck. So when my roommate, Leighann, said she was trying a new sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving instead of making regular white potatoes, I was a little bummed But to […]

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies

With the holidays coming up, I’ve been on the look out recently for new easy cookie recipes on Pinterest. I’m willing to test out any cookie that sounds yummy, especially when the recipe involves spicing up a cake or cookie mix. It can’t get any easier than that! Remember Allison’s So-Easy-You-Want-to-Kiss-Someone Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins? Two┬áingredients. […]

Sesame Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

I have a confession to make: I really don’t like to eat my vegetables. I don’t mind some raw veggies to much on for a snack or even a salad as a meal, but when it comes to cooked veggies…blech. Peas, broccoli, green beans…yuck, yuck, yuck. I don’t even really liked cooked carrots or corn […]

Review: Kraft Fresh Take Cheese and Breadcrumb Mix

A few weeks ago, both my mom (Sharon) and I noticed a new product at the grocery store: Kraft Fresh Take Mixes. Located in the refrigerated section near the shredded cheese, these mixes feature a cheese and breadcrumb mixture that you can use to coat meat before baking. We decided to give one a try […]

You can make a box of brownies a little fancier by adding m&ms, pretzels, nuts, or even sprinkles on top. Why not try something […]

What to do if you don’t have a Cooling Rack

When you read a recipe, especially for baked goods, you’ll often see that the last step is to cool the cookies or muffins or whatever on a cooling rack. Doing this allows the baked goods to cool more quickly and evenly, so it’s a valuable step that you shouldn’t skip. But what if you don’t […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

We love our red velvet around here. If you haven’t seen them already, we’ve posted iced red velvet cookies and red velvet thumbprint cookies. But today’s recipe takes the cake (no pun intended). They’re annoying to make, but this is the absolutely best red velvet treat out there for those of you who love red […]

Those of us who use Pinterest daily have been waiting for this for a long time: Pinterest is finally allowing users to create private boards! Woo hoo! Called secret boards, all you have to do to create one is log into Pinterest and then go to your profile (your list of boards). If it’s the […]

Mild Stuffed Peppers

When I was a young girl I enjoyed collecting recipes and I still do. I subscribed to the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library. Each month a new package of about 24 recipe cards would come. That was in the early ’70s. The stuffed Green Pepper recipe comes from that box of recipes. Stuffed Green Peppers […]

Crisp and Creamy Fillo Chicken Packets

I absolutely love fillo dough. As you may remember, I used it in the spanakopita recipe we tried a few weeks ago, and today we’re using it in a similar technique to make crispy, buttery, creamy, perfect fillo chicken packets. They’re like little gifts on your plate. This recipe isn’t one I learned from Pinterest. […]
